Reduce the cost of checkups
Regular vet visits are essential for your pet in order to keep up with vaccinations and detect health problems. Do a Google search or look in the Yellow Pages to see if there is a veterinary college in your area. These colleges are always in need of new patients, so they often provide discounts. If you’re hurting financially, try reaching out to foundations like the American Animal Hospital Association’s Helping Pets Fund (www.aahahelpingpets.org) or breed-specific rescue groups; these organizations may provide veterinary care for pet-owning families in need.
